Week 5: Form exploration

The concept that we have chosen to do is the connectivity of the spine. We were intrigued by the way the bones are connected together therefore we would like to focus on this aspect.

The bones are ‘stacked’ together through the spinal cord and connected by the facet joints. This makes an area of the bones overlap each other and we thought that this would be a good characteristic to include it into our final sculpture.

However, this week, we wanted to brainstorm for more ideas of the form (before we settle on the overall form) of the spine so we did a bit of form exploration. We tried different forms to expand our limitations because we do not want to be conformed to the exact form of the spine.

One thought on “Week 5: Form exploration”

  1. connectivity has a very broad meaning. it’s a good concept and a positive one

    reminding the spine is ok but try to be not too literal when you develop your sketches

    the unit elements could be scaling up to convey a sense of hierarchy (if you think is necessary) or could be the same unit just repeated in a number of pieces

    what this installation supposed to be, a sitting area? what kind of functions it might be able to integrate in it (if)? in how many ways it can recall the concept of connectivity?

    start to play with 3dimensional mockup and use human silhouettes to define size and volume
